Default Foster Sterling ID bracelet

I found this ID Bracelet the other day digging around an old house site. It cleaned up nice. I have never seen one with this type of silver band. It is very well made and I was wondering how old it might be? It is stamped " Foster Sterling"

That is shiny! That style was popular late 70s to early 80s if memory serves.

Nice bracelet. Just curious, does sit say "Foster", or "Forstner"? Forstner bracelets are more vintage, and you can find some with similar style of roping.....

Cool find either way......

Like this one....... Looks like almost the same type of clasp too.......
